Prof Needleman is Professor of Restorative Dentistry and Evidence-Based Healthcare at UCL Eastman Dental Institute and Honorary Consultant in Periodontology with UCLH. He is a clinical specialist in periodontics at UCL and in specialist practice at PerioLondon.

Research at the London 2012 Olympics, Premier League Football, current Olympians and professional cycling and rugby shows consistently poor oral health with high levels of caries, erosive tooth wear and periodontal diseases. What is most striking is that more than 1 in 5 athletes report an impact of their oral health on training and performance. In this presentation, Prof Needleman will share some of the data from our research studies in elite sport and discuss both the causes and how to improve this situation. He will also explore just how oral health can affect performance.
This topic represents an interesting and new area of research and another way that dental health impacts patient’s lives. As dentists we need to be aware of this new area of oral health care.
Nicholas Kalavrezos is a Head and Neck Reconstructive Surgeon and the Lead Clinician in the Head and Neck Centre at University College London Hospital with a background in Oral and Maxillo-Facial surgery.
Lesions of the head and neck can be of congenital, traumatic, inflammatory or of neoplastic origin. The aim of this lecture is to focus mainly on the most common diagnostic dilemmas that we may face in the dental office and the vast majority of them will be lesions of inflammatory and neoplastic origin. An overview of the most common conditions will be outlined with emphasis on the diagnostic and therapeutic principles.
Mr Kalavrezos has an immense amount of experience both clinically and in research. His extensive knowledge of head and neck cancers makes him a valuable resource we can all learn from. This is an area that is often overlooked when patients see their GP. As such we have a responsibility to be able to identify abnormalities that require further investigation. This lecture will refresh and update our knowledge in these areas and is essential for all practicing dentists.

Appropriate patient care mandates an insightful diagnosis, thorough case work-up and development of a comprehensive, interdisciplinary treatment plan. Exquisite execution of therapy, whether it be “simple” or staged therapy requiring metal framework provisional restorations and/or treatment of patient musculature, followed by appropriate maintenance care, result in highly predictable long-term treatment outcomes.
